Teaching our children to recite the Quran correctly is so
important as Muslim parents. Tajweed, the rules of Quranic recitation, should
be done in young children, so that mistakes do not need to be corrected in
can be challenging. Young children do not want to sit in formal lessons for too
long. The rules can seem complicated and the terminology over-whelming.
can we teach young Muslim children the rules of Quranic recitation? Through

created a collection of rhyming songs to help teach your children the rules of
Tabeei, Best friend meem & noon (my personal favourite!), Jumpy Qalqalah and

After listening to these songs, I would recommend them to
children aged 4- 9. To get the most from the CD, they should have had
some exposure to the rules of tajweed previously, so they can understand some
of the terminology used.

These great quality children’s songs are a fantastic way to
introduce Tajweed to, and inculcate a love of the Quran in, young Muslim
I would recommend this CD to all madrasas, as well as any parent
eager to encourage their children to recite correctly from an early age.
